Shawn Levy, PhD, believes greatness is in the nuances. And that attention to detail has propelled his work to the forefront of the rapid advances in genomic sequencing technology.

Levy is a faculty investigator at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. His work focuses on finding ways to put together tools to sequence and analyze large genomes in the fastest, most cost-efficient way possible. He established the Genomic Services Laboratory in 2009 when he came to HudsonAlpha and built it into one of the top sequencing labs in the country. In 2019 the GSL became HudsonAlpha Discovery, a division of Discovery Life Sciences.
